Eddie seemed unfazed by my entrance that evening; this is the drawing I found on the mirror in our bathroom as I awoke
Thank you for making me look so good darling!

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."

This one is for you dad...the kindest, most gentle father who quite literally gave the shirt off his back for others. He taught me to laugh with gusto and be happy with the lesser things in life. I miss riding atop of the gigantic pile of tree branches in the back of his old pickup truck and going camping at Leo Carillo amongst so many other things.
He'd sing this made-up ditty for me..

liquid brandy dandy
outshines them all
does anything, goes anywhere
yet won't rip, rain or tear
liquid brandy you're my girl!

Heatstroke

As I was perusing the Rose Bowl flea market one sunny Sunday, I met a kindly gentleman who bestowed these amazing antique hand puppets who were worse for wear. I decided to photograph them and they soon became close confidantes revealing their incredible story with me. And now, I share with you dear reader this miniseries titled, Heatstroke.
--
These portraits are of the infamous melodramatic opera troupe known as Infinito Fantasma, who are eternally devoted to the stage and their craft. They once performed onstage nonstop through the sweltering heat wave of 1896 which left them much changed in appearance but unwavering in their love of showmanship. They continue to perform tragicomedies worldwide until this day.
